Three of the stcries m this ccliection — L, V., and IX. 
— have been supplied by Mr. Charles Coll, Croaghs 
N.S., Commeen, Strabane, who took them down from 
oral narration. Three more — IV., VIÍL, and X. — 
have been supplied by Mr. D. D. Murphy, Valentia. 
One — XI. — has been taken down from oral narration 
by " 5f\A , o-|\Aióium/' CotUifce pÁ^Aig 1 tn.415 tttiAtiAC ; 
and the remaining two — II. and VI. — have appeared in 
"t>AnW and " 1^if te-AbA|\ na S-Ae'óit^e" respectively : 
the latter was taken down in Philadelphia from 
John King, a native of Kilconly, Co. Galway. 

As the title imphes, the three provinces in which Irish 
still survives are equally represented in the Collection. 
Some of the stories, particularly IV. and XL, have 
been abridged very considerably, and all have had 
to be modified somewhat at certain points. In no 
case, however, has the language been consciously 
interfered with beyond bringing the spelling into har- 
mony with the standard aimed at in the dictionary of 
the Irish Texts Society. The thanks of the publishers 
and of the editor are hereby tendered to the collectors 
and the narrators of the stories.
